Subject: Sort of brilliant
The lecture from the health ed teacher is awkward, the footage of the 1940's junkyard full of classic cars is a bit heart-breaking, but the acting by the teens saves the day. It's wonderfully overplayed. It's also great to hear things like, "It's our lunch break, let's go for a drive," as you could apparently do in high school in 1946. It's also heart-breaking to see that you could get a real malt for only fifteen cents.

Subject: Agility! Stamina! Judgement!
Totally 2nd rate alcohol awareness film for teenagers that emphasizes three characteristics, Agility, Stamina and Judgement, and somewhat falls into boring school lectures, curiously peppered with weird school demonstrations and a great overhead slide machine. In the end, the film briefly goes into how two guys have their Âpride about drinking. Soon a old Soda Jerk chimes in on the conversation as well, but in a classic moment, canÂt remember his lines! But other then that, pretty average.
